Did you know what is Sterling Silver?
Let's understand it today. Sterling Silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% of another metal. Pure silver is too soft and less durable hence jewellers mix another metal to provide strength to fine silver.
Sterling Silver is shiny, highly reflective metal. Usually jewellery made with Sterling Silver stamped with .925 hallmark.
Did you know how to clean Sterling Silver Jewellery?
Sterling silver reacts with moisture to create a layer of tarnish or oxidation on its surface. Baking soda activated by boiling water in the presence of aluminium, will dislodge the tarnish by making it bind with the aluminium, leaving the sterling silver clean and shiny again. This is the simple way to clean and polish your sterling silver jewellery.
Did you know how to store Sterling Silver Jewellery?
To minimize tarnishing, store sterling silver in a moisture-free environment. Use plastic bags with zipper locks, anti-tarnish strips or moisture-absorbent products.
